The ·environmental 'dilemma ·
Perhaps_ the most dangerous
aspect of pursuing a system of ideas is
that one does not know where one will
be taken. This unknown seeillS to
frighten the bejesus out of some
people, and atrophies all
neuromuscular follow-through which
~oul~ otherwise lead to philosophical
Such is the dilernrna that the
environmental movement faces today
as we celebrate Earth Week '83. The
system of ideas which serves as the
foundation for action on behalf of the
, environment is an obviously sound set
of _ideas. It has produced much
environmental progress since the first
Earth Day in 1970. However
environmentalists tend to lose thei;
footing when issues which seem to lie
"environmentalism" can easily be
connected by a logical extension of the
ideas which serve as their base.
The beauty of Dr. Barry
Coininoner's Earth Week address
earlier this week was his ability to
extend.his ecological philosophy to an
overriding social philosophy which he
ca~ed economic democracy. A verbal
artist, Dr. Coininoner's environmental
system of ideas have led him to
consider nuclear war as the most
threatening environmental problem
we face today, and has also taken him
into the realm of economics
participatory decision making and
social history.
This journey by Dr. Coininoner was
ma~e out of logical necessity. The
environmental philosophy Dr.
C~Ininoner holds could not prevent
him .from bridging issues of the
. economy or foreign policy. From Dr.
Coininoner's base, since he was
looking for answers without inhibition
hiS ideas could not help but arrive ai
the destination they did.
It is just this consistency which
makes the ideas of Dr. Coininoner so
. The ideas are sound. However, these
Ideas are not perfect, and are certainly
not easy to work with in today's world.
And there's the rub. This is the
dilernrna, the daring dilernrna of the
environment. Just where does the
en~ironment end? Is there a point at
which one stops thinking as an
environmentalist and starts thinking
The idea of the environment is an
unlimited concept by definition. To
environmentalist means that one must
be unlimited or unconstrained. Y <a
must be willing to pursue t..,
hypothesis as far as the data will take
The idea of the environment is also
an interrelated concept by definition.
The elements and entities of the world
connect, are related to one another by
nature. Thus, to think as an
environmentalist means that you must
follow the connectedness of the world
that is by nature in the world.
In_ a_ world controlled by the concept
of divide and conquer, these ideas are
challenging. The environmental
movement must not accept · the
challenge of this external set of ideas.
The dileinina the environmental
movement faces is acceptance of the
ideas which constitute its own base. In
other words, an environmentalist must
understand what the environment is
and to understand what th~
environment means is to know that you
must follow the necessary relations
which make up the world.
During Earth Week, let us reflect on
this dilernrna. Look it square in the
face, and evaluate. After all in
celebration of the Earth, it des~rves
nothing less.

To Pointer Magazine,
I am writing in regard· to
the feature article "For Five
Hundred Trivia Points." I
feel that the student organizations, 90FM and Student
Experimental Television
(S.E.T.) deserved more than
a simple feature ·article in
your magazine. Doesn't the
participation of more than
2000 people in the world's
largest trivia contest warrant a news .article? I
enjoyed Ms. Harwood's feature but feel that further
coverage was necessary.
TriVia 1983 was broadcast
live for 54 consecutive hours
on 90FM and S.E.T., cable
kChannel 3. The amount of
tinie contributed to Trivia by
the staffs of both organizations is inconceivable.
In Ms. Harwood's article,
the only reference to
S.E.T.'s efforts is '"S.E.T.
provided a few laughs, especially when they ran the list
of teams." In reality, S.E.T.
provided fine programming

adventures. One of the
gest contributions to Trivia
'83 was the production of
Trivia Focus. Throughout
the weekend the staff of
S.E. T. visited the homes of
nine TriVia teams and featured in depth coverage of
their triVial secrets and opinions.
Hopefully, next year
S.E.T. and 90FM will receive
_the 500 Trivia points they deserve.

Commoner's message ·kicks off Earth .W eek
By Chris Celichowski
Pointer News Editor
• Most American radicals
and liberals never come out
of the closet. Just search be·
hind the. cloaks of neutrality
and the conventional caps
and you'll find them. But,
you will not find Barry Commoner.
Monday evening Commoner opened Earth Week festivities with a blunt address
tracing our environmental
problems beyond the current
scandal at the Environmental Protection Agency. He
attacked fundamental eco1 nomic practices in the US as
the basis of many of our environmental concerns.
"The source of environmental change ...lies in the
decisions of what is produced and how it is produced," Commoner told a
large crowd at Berg gymnasium.
According to Commoner,
current problems at the EPA
originated not in Anne Burford's mismanagement but
in the "underhanded" approach to the environment
· taken by President Reagan.
Not only did the president
choose an administrator with
a proven anti-environment
record, but systematic budg.
et-cutting and nonenforcement of current laws have
taken their toll as well.
"We're forced with a real
crisis in our economic concerns," he concluded.
Overregulation in government agencies was a misperception, said Commoner, because the good intentions behind environmental laws do
not erase the fact that the
laws are "not directed at the
causes of environmental pollution."
The 1980 Citizens' Party
presidential candidate examined the origins of smog
and aldicarb pollution to
prove his point. Aldicarb, for
example, was developed during the technological explosion following World War II
in which the emphasis was
placed on increased produc. tivity. However, the creators
of many pesticides like aldicarb failed to note basic biology.
"It is very likely that anything that kills one organism
is likely to have some rather
noticeable biological effects
on another one," he said.
In addition, synthetic substances throw a wrench in
the biological chain because
they violate the general rule

things.''Commoner concluded iinprovements in the condition
of our environment would result in simultaneous gains in
the productive capacity of
the US economy, which has
remained stagnant in recent
years. For example, changes
in our "defensive" environmental laws should reflect
the natural concept of cycles
in which all natural wastes
are food for other organisms.
Commoner ·said a
comparison of conventiona~
farming (using pesticides)
and organic- farming revealed no difference in farm
income and a very small advantage in crop yields for
the conventional farm.
The reason many farmers
suffer economic problems is
traceable back to a turn of
the century battle in which
.gasoline defeated alcohol as
the primary fuel for autos.
Grain alcohol would have
provided the diversity of income farmers needed,
ac~ording to Commoner.
Since grain alcohol is produced by solar energy and is
renewable, it remains far
more efficient than gasoline
derived from non-renewable
fossil fuels.
In addition, since carbohydrates ·alone are in grain
alcohol, the remaining protein residue is an excellent
livestock feed. Hence, it doubles the economic productivity of the land.
"If we adopt an ecological
approach, we can not only
get rid of the pollution problem but "We can improve economic productivity," said
Commoner offered his
theory of economic democracy as a solution to our environmental and economic
"What I've been telling
you is someoody other than
the Detroit corporations
ought to decide what kind of
cars they should build.''
Executive decisions by the
major automakers crippled
the industry, said Commoner, because they were based
on a single criteria: maximizing profit. General Motors
found they could make a kill·
ing on bigger cars by parlaying a $300 production cost
difference between Chev. rolets and Cadillacs into a
$3000 difference in sticker
Cominoner admitted the
radical nature of his idea,
but noted Pope John Paul II
had proposed precisely the
same thing in his encyclical
"On Human Labor.''
"In the view of the Church
it is immoral if workers
don't have a lot to say about
what happens in the factory,
how the .capital is invested,
and what is produced. It is
immoral because the work-
ers produce the capital."
Neither the pope's nor
Commoner's views have
been brought into the public
forum by American politicians, noted Commoner.
Commoner said nuclear
war was our most serious
environmental problem, far
outdistancing aldicarb and
dioxin pollution.
"(We) ·have enough nuclear weapons to wipe out

the opening number which
drew the audience onstage.
The rhythmic movement of
the group, accompanied by
hand clapping and slapping,
loosened up many members
of the audience who were
likely prepared for Fred
Astaire and Gene Kelly.
The dancers proved
themselves very capable of
classic renditions of their art,
but impressed us with their
becoming innovations. Their
feet weren't the only things
that did the talking.
Syncopated beats originated
from sticks, cowbells, hands,
and alliteration of other
musical tones.
"Spoon River," performed
by the Front Porch Swing
Band, was a simple bluesy
number danced by Dally and
Strickler. The piece gave the
impression of an impromptu
jam session rather than some
performance. It put the mind
and body at ease, releasing
sensory bonds and allowing
us to have some fun.
Musicians Paul Arslanian
and Keith Terry joined
Strickler for "Tune for K.B."
Although Strickler's dancing
was exciting, the interplay
between Arslanian and Terry
stole the piece. Using sticks,
which they pounded on the
floor and clapped together,
we saw the uninhibited joy so
often noted in children.
The second set opened with
"Blues Suite," a steamy
number lead by Strickler,
who was dressed a Ia Bogart.
His slick, slithering
movements were offset by
· Dally and Richman's Uvely
duet. It became a story of two
sly sirens competing for the
attention of a suave,
mysterious stranger.
Solo performances by the
dancers were all spectacular,
but Camden Richman's stood
out. Accompanied only by
bassist Dannenburg, she
pranced to the jerky strains
of the old blues classic "Not
Fade Away." Dannenburg's
rough but punchy vocals
added heat to the fiery solo
number. .
The Jazz Tap Ensemble
received a well-deserved,
enthusiastic ovation after
finishing their final piece,
"Jam With Honi," dedicated
to their renowned mentor
Charles "Honi" Coles.
Rather than performing for
us, they had performed with
us. The power came from two
sources-performers and
audience-and that is what

emotions and made it . so

Pending bill.would provide smoke-free areas
By Stella Ciccolini
and Ann Hutchinson
The battle between
smokers and non-smokers
has been gaining speed
lately. The issue is very old,
but not until recently have
non-smokers done· anything
about it. What was previously
thought of as only an
annoyance is now considered
harmful. A bill has been
introduced in the Wisconsin
Legislature that would
provide the public with
smoke free areas. This bill is
kflown as the Clean Indoor
Air bill, (SB 80).
If this bill is passed, it will
mean all public areas would
be considered non-smoking
designated as a smoking

restaurants that seat under
fifty, private functions in
public places, . and offices
occupied exclusively by
Although the purpose
behind the introduction of the
bill is a sound one, that is, to
restrict smoking in public
areas, the bill has one major
drawback. It doesn't penalize
people for smoking in a
designated non-smoking
area. It is for this reason that
restaurant owners oppose the
bill. They feel that they would
bear the
brunt of
enforcement, and they would
also be fined for not posting
proper signs. It is also the
restaurants who are
responsible for creating
barriers between the areas.
The Tobacco Institute also
opposes the bill because they
consider it "capricious and
arbitrary." It feels a law
regulating smoking would be
similar to a law regulating
sex between consenting
adults. The issue, the
Institute claims, is a matter
of personal courtesy and
therefore should not be a
matter of the government.
The Wisconsin Lung
Association disagrees. It
feels that smoking is a health
hazard and for this reason
non-smokers should be
protected. A study in San
Diego concluded that nonsmokers
chronically exposed to smoke
had a similar air holding
capacity to that of light
smokers, less than 11
cigarettes per day.
Secondhand smoke also
affects the health of children
and infants. One study
showed that parents who
smoke make children more
susceptible to pneumonia and
. bronchitis. Side-smoke can
affect the health of those who
are asthmatic and allergic.

Dr. Harold Rusch of the ·

choice. That choice being

would provide protection for
these people.
The office has been an area
of great controversy over this
issue. A landmark case
against New Jersey Bell in
1976 upheld ·.the argument
that employees who do not

Active opposition.continues in· mining process
By Roscoe Churchill
Probably one of the.. most
important mining-related
· developments at this time in
Northern Wisconsin is the
effort coming out of Mark
tronsky's office · to
the Rusk County
Citizens' Action Group.·Mark
Patronsky is . the staff
attorney f_or the Wisconsin
Legislative Council. The
RCCAG was formed in the
mid-1970s when it became
known that Kennecott Copper
Corporation had plans to
develop an open pit copper
mine in Ladysmith along the
Chippewa River.
There is no question that
the attorneys involved in the
consensus decision-making
process which led to the
mining rules are behind this.
I heard the statement of
Kevin Lyons, one of the
consensus lawyers, that the
recent pamphlet criticizing
Wisconsin's recently passed
mining laws is not correct. In
fact, an article by Richard
Kienitz in · the April 14
Milwaukee Journal points out
inaccuracies. Lyons was
hired by the town of Grant in
1976 and the town of Nashville
in 1977 to represent them in
negotiations with the mining
companies. Lyons was fired ·
by the town of Grant in 1982.
Those of us who have
studied the mining laws find
more inaccuracies in
Patronsky's discussion. I'm
certain this action is another
way of convincing the public
that the mining law~ provide
more protection for
Wisconsin's citizens than is
true. This would soften the
opposition to the Exxon mine
near Crandon.
This is a serious enough
program that it demands
some kind of action be taken
to get the real picture to the
public. Possibly some legal
action might be taken so the
truth about the mining laws
will have to come out.
Local action in·
the North
On a local level, several
changes have taken place in
the town of Grant in 1982 and
1983. The town of Grant has a
moratorium on all mining
and a resolution that all
mining matters must be
settled by a referendum vote
of the qualified voters. But
most important, the town has
a new town board except for
one member, and new town
officials who are very
concerned about the quality
of Wisconsin's mining laws_
and want important changes
brought about in the laws.
Also; the · Rusk County
Board will be adopting a
tough new zoning code for
mining. This code is being
drafted at this time and could
be ready for adoption yet
this year.

Acid precipitation already falls here

Has aldicarb ever been proven ·saf~?
By John Bruce
Ground water is a
marvelous resource. It 1s
simply rainfall that has
collected irr large quantities
below the land's surface and
is flowing to streams and
rivers where it flows back to
the oceans- rain has to go
somewhere too, you know.
Ground water has been pure
and suitable for drinking
because soil effectively
filters out naturally
occurring pollutants. But the
soil has not been afforded the
evolutionary advantage of
being able · to properly
remove, in all cases, the toxic
substances we create and put
on the land surface.
Among these toxic
substances are insecticidM
which are a specific class of
pesticide used for many
purposes, including the
control. of insects and ·other
invertebrates that feed on
Insecticides kill insects by
attacking the neural enzyme
cholinesterase and thereby
breaking down their nervous
sytems. Cholinesterase is
also important in our nervous
systems and, therefore,
ingestion of insecticides
creates a health hazard, lhe
extent of which depends on
. the amount ingested.
Aldicarb is a systemic,
carbamate insecticide which
is used to control many
invertebrates including the.
Colorado potato beetle and
nematodes which feed on
potato crops. Aldicarb is very
water soluble and; dissolving
in rainfall and irrigation
water, has entered ground
water beneath potato fields in
Central Wisconsin and Long
Island, New York-, beneath
citrus groves in Florida,
beneath crops in Maine and
Virginia, and has entered the
ground water supplies that
many people in these areas
use for drinking water. It has ·
been removed from the
market in Long Island and
possibly Florida because of
ground water contamination.
Aldicarb in our diet:
what does it mean?
Aldicarb is the most toxic
pesticide registered by the
Environmental Protection
Agency. However, it has been
considered safe for us to
consume in water, oranges,
potatoes and other foods in
concentrations below 10, 300
and 1,000 parts per billion,
respectively, by its
Carbide. It appears that
there is potential, because of
its nature as an insecticide,
for aldicarb to pose a health
threat to anyone consuming it
along with water or food,
even. at relatively low
Aldicarb consumed in large
amounts will disrupt many
physiological processes,
resulting in visible
symptoms such as vomiting,
sweating, · blurred vision,
abdominal cramps, loss of
muscular control, and even
death. It is highly unlikely,
though, that we would ever
consume enough aldicarb to
·experience these symptoms.
Nevertheless, we should be
concerned about the possible
effects of consl!Illing stnall
amounts of aldicarb for
extended periods of time.
It is quite evident that
· certain people can consume a
glass of water with less than
10 ppb aldicarb and
experience no visible damage
from it. But, there is no
evidence to suggest that
people-young, old, babies,
pregnant women and
developing children, and all
other people with our
immensely complicated and
functions-can consume low
concentrations of aldicarb in
a glass of water or two/every
day, and in food, and in
combination with other
chemicals, for weeks,
months, 3 years, or 40 years.
We may be able to
accomplish this, however
undesirable it might seem,
with no observable side-·
effects. However, what if
symptoms and effects of
poisoning do occur that are
not apparent and not readily
aldicarb-symptoms like
headaches, dizziness,
depression, or loss of
cognitive capacity?
Also, though aldicarb is not
suspected of causing cancer,
it is conceivable that it could
promote cancer formation.
All - these symptoms and
effects can be caused by
other•things making proof of
an exact cause-effect
relationship of aldicarb
poisoning difficult if not
impossible to determine.
And, lack of symptoms leads
us to believe tha.t everything
is O.K. This uncertainty is
part 6f the reason why
aldicarb is allowed to enter
drinking water supplies and
why it is difficult to demand
that this not occur, and,
perhaps, a very good reason
why aldicarb shouldn't be

Some growers and other
agricultural experts, and
promoters of pesticide use
contend that consumers are
fussy and demand "high
quality" food. Well, they do
and should demand this. But,
given that high quality food
can be produced without the
use of aldicarb or other
pesticides, and upon learning
of all the external costs that
go into the production of
these products consumers
may feel differently about
pesticide use. And it is
doubtful that the majority of
consumers are aware of nonpesticide _ agriculture
methods or the external food
costs. Do we realize the

eat may contain, and the

this. Food processing

-By Karen Mytas
The spring sunshine drifts over me,
pushing away the winter's chill. It
reaches through widening cracks in my
walls, and wakes the mice snuggled in
the straw.
My memory returns me to another
spring many years past. The air then
was filleq with sounds of sawing and
hammering, shouts and laughter. It was
a day of celebration, both for the farmer
who owned me, and· for the neighbors
and friends who pitched in to build me.
- Back then, it seemed people cooperated
more often than they competed.
Those early years were pleasant ones.
My walls were a snug shelter for several
cattle and the team of horses that
worked the fields. Children played in the
hayloft, giggling as they buried one
aQother in the straw. The pungent scent
of fresh hay drifted from the loft to
mingle with the warm smell of the
animals. Even a pair of barn owls
nested in my rafter and, along with the
cats, kept the prolific mice from
overrunning the farm.
Years passed .. The horses and cattle
were replaced by a clattering, smokebelching tractor. -The farmer spent
many long hours keeping that tractor
repaired; unlike the horses, it needed
more than food and a warm shelter to
stay in working condition. As I recall, it
never whinnied a greeting to him on
chilly November mornings, nor trotted
_around the yard with three or four
squealing children clinging to its back.
Without the animals' warmth, the
winter chill seemed to bite a little more
sharply and hold on more tightly than in
winters past.
The _farmer and I were growing old,
weathering, turning gray, creaking a
little when the winds blew. But, unliKe
him, I wasn't yet ready to retire. When a
neighbor bought the farm, I housed a
new generation of equipment. The old
tractor had served many different
tasks; - this machinery was more
specialized, designed only to bale hay or
pick corn. I overheard more talk now of
market prices and ·subsidies, of loan
payments, steel buildings, and grain
silos. The neighbors all seemed in a
hurry, rushing to build up the biggest
operation they could, as quickly as they
could. I sometimtts wished they would
slow down and be happy with what they
A bam's memoirs
There came a time when even the
baler and cornpicker were removed to a
new, bigger steel shed, and I was left
idle. It was suddenly very quiet, and the
silence was a new sensation for me. No
laughter from the children's straw
fights, no maternal mooing, and no
mumbled curses as the farmer tried
once more to fix his aging tractor. Most
of the sounds I heard came from the ·
fields outside, where huge tractors with
500 horsepower engines and airconditioned cabs worked larger and
larger fields of corn and potatoes.
This past winter seemed longer and
colder than most. Snow found new
spaces to sift down through my roof and
sweep through my walls. The wind was
worse than ever before. Perhaps it was
because a nearby line of trees, which
used to break its force, was cut last fall
to make more space for corn. The mice
and I agree that corn makes a much
poorer windbreak than oaks do.
This spring, like all those in my past,
marks the start of a new cycle of
planting, growth, and harvest. But this
summer I will stand idle again, no
longer playing a part in the farm's
cycle. The young couple from the city,
living now in the big farmhouse, think
nothing of old country barns with ·
sagging rafters. My past, and that of the
farm we rest upon, is of little interest to
them. They probably see me as more of
an eyesore than a landmark.
The spring sunlight is warming my
drooping roof and tickles the blades of ·
grass peeking up along my foundations.
The mice scamper for seeds, no longer
fearful because the barn owls are gone.
Someday soon, maybe even this
summer, I'll be gone, too.
That's all right. I'll still be playing a
part in that cycle of growing and dying
and growing again. And there are .still a
few people who remember the past as
fondly as I do. Perhaps they will feel the
loss of a sagging, unused barn with
nothing left but old straw and mice.

ETF fulfills important environmental research
By Sheldon M. Cohen
Environmental Writer
In recent years, a number
of issues have arisen relative
to toxic chemicals in the environment. Incidents such as
New York's Love Canal,
PCBs in Lake Michigan, discovery of pesticide contamination in groundwater. and
landfill leaching have caused
widespread concern relative
to human health.
The College of Natural Resources ( CNR) has been
working on many of these
issues for a number of years,
and trains many students
who end up addressing these
issues upon graduation. The
environmental chemistry
area within the CNR has
grown rapidly in I:ecent

by a variety of local agencies in decisions involving
lakeshore use and development and also provides a reliable long term data base
for future study.
The pH levels of rainwater

Low-tech recycling survives in Point
The Recycling Corporation
is based on the belief that recycling is a key ingredient to
the solution of our solid
waste disposal problems.
Their goal is to extend the
life of the Portage County
landfill. The landfill, located
in the Town of Stockton, has
a life expectancy of 15 years.
A one year extension would
save the county over
$400,000. The county, in order to encourage recycling
efforts; has placed a surcharge of 25 cents on every
ton of garbage dumped in
the landfill. The revenue
from the surcharge, approximately $6,000 per year, goes
to the Recycling Corporation
to help with maintenance
The problems of solid
waste disposal are not only
economic but also environmental. Governor Tony Earl
recently declared solid waste
disposal Wisconsin's number
one environmental problem.
In the next 10 years, well
over 60 percent of Wisconsin's 420 landfi~ will have to
be shut down for environmental reasons. New landfill
sites are limited because ·of
political and environmental
reasons. In other words, no
one wants a landfill in their
own back yard.
In the future, high technology recycling may solve solid waste disposal problems.
This kind of recycling requires systems that process,
grind, and then burn trash in
order to produce heat energy. In recent years, The Wisconsin Solid Waste Authority
has spent millions of dollars
trying to develop such systems but their efforts have
ended in failure. The latest
example is their failure to
reach an agreement with
Ore-Ida Foods to build such
a system in Plover. Dan Die-
trich, commenting on the
failure, said he is "sorry but
not surprised," adding that
"high technology recycling
is not yet profitable." If the
Ore-Ida plant would · have
been built, the Recycling
Corporation would have
complemented it by removing unburnable materials
from the trash flow. These
materials clog up boilers in
high-tech burning systems.
Whether high technology
recycling becomes a reality,

Brewers, Angels to repeat in A.L.
By Joseph Vanden Plas
Senior News Editor
One decade ago the
American League West was
the better division in the
junior circuit. It boasted the
World Champion Oakland
A's, with stars such as.Rollie
Fingers, Reggie Jackson,
Catfish Hunter, Sal Bando
and Vida Blue. In addition,
the AL West had quality
players such as Rod Carew,
Richie Allen, Tony Oliva,
Wilbur Wood and Harmon
Since 1975, however, the
Eastern Division has ruled
the American League .
Eastern 'clubs ha-v e
represented the AL in seven
of the last eight World Series.
This year should be no
different. Five eastern
teams-Milwaukee, Baltimore, New York, Boston--and
Detroit-would probably wm
the West. Two others,
and Toronto, could
give western front runners a
stiff challenge.
- Here's a preview of the 1983
divisional races in the
American League (excluding
Milwaukee, which was
previewed last week). 1982
records are in parentheses.
Baltimore (94-68)-With a
By Tom Burkman
Pointer Sportswriter
Having not played since
March 10 (in a win against
Louisiana College), the
UWSP baseball team split a
non-conference double~head­
er with Eau Claire here last
Monday. The Pointers won
the opener 6-5 but fell 6-2 in
the nightcap.
Playing in windy 37 degree
weather, the Pointers jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in
the first inning off Blugold
starter John McFarland.
Pointer centerfielder Don
Hurley led off the productive
inning with a double. Second
baseman Dan Titus then followed with a walk and Pat
Mendyke sacrificed Hurley
to third forcing Titus at second. With runners at the
corners, John Southworth
singled in Hurley. Jeff Sauer
then followed with yet another sacrifice and Jeff Bohne
and Bill Ruhberg both delivered run-scoring singles to
end the inning.
That gave Pointer starter
Steve Natvick a three-run
cushion until the Blugolds
scored four unearned runs in
their half of the _third. Eau
Claire first baseman Jeff
Bamberger got on base via
starting rotation comprised
of Jim Palmer, Scott
McGregor, Mike Flanagan,
Dennis Martinez and future
star Storm Davis, it's easy
for the O's to avoid prolonged
losing streaks. A superb
defense (only 101 errors in
1982) doesn't hurt.
Offensively, Baltimore
relies on MVP runner-up
Eddie Murray and Rookie of
the Year Cal Ripken Jr.
Newcomers Leo Hernandez
and John Shelby will make
~nager Joe Altobelli's job
easier. Expect the postWeaver Orioles to take
Milwaukee to the final
weekend again. Predicte.d
finish : 2nd.
Detroit (83-79)-The Tigers
may be one short reliever
away from winning the East.
Manager Sparky Anderson
hopes that pitcher is either
Dave Rozema or flame
throwing Aurelio Lopez, ·who
Anderson coaxed out of
retirement. The starting
rotation, Dan Petry, Jack
Morris, Milt Wilcox and Gary
Udjar, is solid.
Strongman Lance Parrish,
Larry Herndon and Kirk
Gibson, unfairly dubbed "the
next Mickey Mantle," lead
the offense. The Tigers also
have a great double play
combo in shortstop Alan
Trammel and second
baseman Lou Whitaker.
Predicted finish: 3rd.
New York- (79-83)-The
middle of the Yankee line-up,
Ken Griffey, Steve Kemp,
Dave Winfield and Don
Baylor, will produce runs in
droves. Goose Gossage is one
of the game's premier
relievers and, oh yeah,
Billy's back. Ho'wever, Ron
Guidry is the only- reliable
starting pitcher, unless Dave
Rhighetti regains his rookie
form. If not, owner George
Steinbrenner may be inclined
to "shake up" his team
again. The last ti:rpe he tried
that, New York fell from first
to fifth place. Predicted
finish: 4th.
Boston (89-73)-The Red
Sox will field an excellent
starting line-up with the
additions of Tony Armas in
center and Jeff Newman
behind the plate. They also
have a stroqg bullpen with
Mark Clear (14-9 , 14 saves)
and Bob Stanley (12-7, 14
saves) . Their achilles heel is
starting pitching. Dennis
Eckersley, John Tudor and
Bob Ojeda combined for just
30 wins last season. Predicted
finish: 5th.
Toronto (78-84)- The Jays
have earned respectability
but will be hard pressed to
make a significant move up
in the standings in baseball's
most competitive division.
Toronto's starting pitching is
second only to Baltimore's.
The rQ,tation consists of Dave
Stieb, Jim Clancy, Luis Leal
and ex-Yankee Mike Morgan,
who handcuffed Milwaukee
Furthermore, the Toronto
Jarm system continues to
produce excellent major
league prospects. Powerful
Tucker Ashford and switchhitting shortstop Tony
Fernandez are the prize
rookies this year. Base
stealing threat Dave Collins
and slugger Cliff Johnson join
a talented cast of young
veterans. Prellicted finish:
Cleveland (78-84)-The
tribe's staff posted a
disappointing 4.11 ERA in
1982 despite outstanding
years from Len Barker and
Rick Sutcliffe. If Bert
Blyleven completes a
successful comeback from
elbow surgery, Cleveland will
be strong in this department.
With the exception of Dan
Spillner (21 saves, 2.49 ERA),
the bullpen is a liability.
Andre Thorton and -Toby
Harrah carried too much of
the offensive load in 1982. ExPhillie Manny Trillo and
rookie shortstop Julio Franco
should add more punch.
Predicted finish: 7th.
California (93-69)-Much of
the same cast ·returns, with
the exception of Don Baylor,
who will be -replaced by

As Steiner remembered,
"May (pitcher Scott)
seemed to be most affected
by the cold. He's a strikeout

way too many pitches in
those f.our innings. He got

"We had the opportunity to
score more runs but we just
didn't jump on it," added
Steiner. "I thought we could
win but, during the second
game, we seemed to lose our
desire to win. Maybe it was
the cold weather. I don't
know." He then added, "I
was not very impressed with
our pitching in that second
game. We've got to get some
consistency out of our pitchers. They simply have got to
throw more strikes."

al Portage County wells during a survey by UWSP and
the Portage County Health
Department. These results
were confirmed by the Environmental Protection Agency and Union Carbide, a major producer of the pesticide.
Dr. Shaw's work uncovered
widespread contamination of
area wells and disclosure of
his findings has sparked a
great deal of local and regional controversy regarding
pesticide application and human health hazards. The
Wisconsin Department of
Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection is working
on permanent rules that
would restrict aldicarb use
in areas where groundwater
levels exceed 10· p;,trts per
billion (ppb). Aldicarb residues have been found in 81 of
509 wells sampled in central
Wisconsin since early 1981 at
concentrations ranging from
one to 111 ppb.'
Because lhe Environmental Task Force has grown
faster than state funding
rates, crowding and equip-
ment deficiencies have become a problem .. A new lab
complex has bten proposed
to alleviate some of these
problems and facilitate analyses of organic contami.nants, toxic chemicals and
trace organics and metals.
The complex would include
wet chemistry, biology, chromatography and plasma
emission labs. It would also
include rooms for trace
organic preparation, chemical storage and preparation,
and computer work. Several
additional pieces of equip- .
ment will be needed to implement this new program
Prairie chickens, cont.
chickens, observers often see
other wildlife species, such as
sandhill cranes, marsh
hawks, and various song
birds. Dr. Anderson uses the
notes from the observers to
determine the number of
males on each booming
ground. With this information
the population size can be
Although prairie chickens
begin booming before
sunrise, people enjoy getting
including a plasma emission
spectophotometer, and a GCmass spectophotometer.
Both are becoming increasingly important in heavy
metal nutrition and trace
organic analysis. •
As use of pesticides, fertilizers and chemicals continues in the predominantly
agricultural region of central
Wisconsin, the role of the
Environmental Task Force
in detecting hazardous levels
in the environment will become essential if human
health standards and environmental integrity are to be
aut and watching them. Over
250 UWSP students will see
the prairie chickens perform ·
this spring while providing
valuable information for Dr.
Anderson. Another 600 people
from all over the Midwest
will come to Stevens Point for
a chance to see the chickens.
Thanks to concerned
managers, researchers, and
private clubs and individuals
who bought land for ·prairie
chicken habitat around ...
Stevens Point, the prairie
chicken will be in Wisconsin
for some time to come.
Although the mating
season f~r prairie chickens is
almost over, there is still

ly critical suggestion to be
incorporated in future wetland legislatjon.
In Portage County there is
a drainage district which has
been established and has
been in operation for some
years. The farm community
in that area expressed concern in regard to the_effects
of wetland protection legislation. The drainage district
supports the livelihood of
farm families, an important
consideration to be aware of.
Their interests, specifically
source of income, need to be
weighed out against the benefits of wetland protection
Our wetland resources are
valuable both as an essential
part of our ecosystem and as
a beautiful, diverse entity.
Efficient, but wise and fair
compromises are the. tools
by which we can assure that
our wetlands and all their
biologic life and beauty will
remain in the future.
